Hitachi Miter Saw – Perfect Holiday idea.

Posted by on November 18, 2006

It’s almost a crime that we’re selling the Hitachi C10FSB for $399 when our competitors are at least $50 higher. What’s even worse is that Hitachi is picking up ground shipping charges through the holidays, meaning $399.01 can get it delivered to your door. That’s a great deal, since a 60 pound saw is pretty expensive to ship. The only thing we can’t do is gift wrap it and put it under the tree for you.

This is a great miter saw with all the features you could want in a 10″ dual compound sliding miter saw. Ok, so that’s a big name for this tool. Basically, that says it has all the bells a whistles that you could possibly want except a laser, and you can always add a laser for $30 by buying the Irwin add-on miter saw laser, and then you’ll get a free ($4 shipping) Irwin Marathon blade by mail for the saw to top it off.

Hitachi will even let you try this out risk free. If you don’t like it, just send it back and they’ll let us issue a full refund for the tool. What better way to do some great bargain shopping this holiday season? I may have to show my mother this saw. Oh, that reminds me, Dad – don’t read this post.

    Looks good to me, but I need a 12″ blade. I do crown molding, fine fnish work, stair parts, and rails. Anything out there that’s any good?

    There are plenty to choose from. 12″ miter saws come in all price ranges and with all options. It’s a matter of how much do you want to spend and how often are you going to use it.

    For my money the 12″ sliding compound mitre from Dewalt is the way to go. it is lighter than many competitors, making it easy to use. It also allows 60 degree cutting to one side and 50 to the other, slightly further than most of the other I have seen. I have had mine for seven years under some very strenuous conditions (twelve hour days in 100+ heat) and have never had a problem.

    We sell plenty of 12″ DeWALT miter saws as well. The Hitachi, due to a special purchase, was just a really good deal at the time. We just didn’t get enough to keep that deal running all that long, so the price went back up.

    There are a lot of really good miter saws out there, and there should be some neat cordless models coming out over the next couple years if you really want the portability. I still use a cordless from when Makita sold those several years back.

    Longing for the day when cordless means 10 to 12 amps equivalent, soon, very soon!

    You can get a 12″ Crafsman sliding saw with “allthe bells and whistles” on it. It was Editors pick in the Sept. issue of wood magazine. It beat out Dewalt (which are over priced to begin with) and all of the other named brands in every catagory.
